When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Argentina, they said...

"Before retiring in Argentina, expats should familiarize themselves with the local language, Spanish, as it is the official language of the country. Additionally, expats should research the cost of living in the area they plan to retire in, as prices can vary significantly from city to city. It is also important to understand the local healthcare system and to make sure that any necessary medical treatments are covered. Finally, expats should research the local culture and customs to ensure a smooth transition into their new home," wrote a member who made the move to Argentina.

"Learn Spanish before you come. Lack of Spanish won't stop you from achieving anything, but you'll miss out on some fantastic social situations. Other than that, be ready to eat some fantastic steaks and drink some incredible wine," explained one expat living in San Rafael, Argentina.
